A very collectable silver emergency issue of king George the Third Dollar countermark struck on a 1793 Mexico City mint eight reales. The oval countermark, the head of George III punched on to the Spanish kings neck generally creates a flat response on the reverse side. These fascinating dollars were incredibly issued by the Bank of England at a time when silver, and currency was in short supply, and the bank decided to utilise there stock of many Spanish 8 reales held in there vaults, these coins were circulated only for a few years before the new currency issue was released making them extremely collectable and fascinating piece of English numismatics.
